Chelsea has time to sort out a longer-term deal with Mount next season instead of selling him in the summer.
TalkSPORT reporter Alex Crook has told GIVEMESPORT, Chelsea are still hopeful that Mason Mount will sign a new contract at Stamford Bridge.
The Englishman is is approaching the final 12 months of his existing deal, but it appears that the West London club haven’t given up on keeping him.
As per the Evening Standard, talks between the 24-year-old and Chelsea over his future at Stamford Bridge have resumed.
The outlet reports that Todd Boehly has now asked the attacking midfielder to sign a new one or two-year deal after his decision to turn down the opportunity to put pen to paper on a seven-year contract.
It would give Chelsea time to sort out a longer-term deal with Mount next season instead of selling him in the summer.
The MailOnline recently reported that the Magpies have already enquired about signing Mount but were quoted an £80m fee by their Premier League rivals.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the talkSPORT reporter said: “In terms of Mason Mount, I think if he goes anywhere, it’ll be Liverpool, but just been getting noises the last couple of weeks that maybe Chelsea are still hopeful that they can get him to sign a new contract.”
Mount signing a new one or two-year deal instead of something longer could be a smart move for all involved.
